NAATI is the Australian standards and certification authority for professional translators and interpreters.

Only NAATI can issue certifications to practitioners wanting to work as a professional within this field in Australia.

Engaging a NAATI Certified Translator or Interpreter ensures the service you receive will be of a high quality and standard.

It is also a requirement that certain documents for government and immigration purposes will only be accepted if translated by a NAATI Certified Translator.

Does NAATI Certify Companies or Organisations?

No. NAATI only certifies individual translators and interpreters. Organisations and companies cannot state that they are certified by NAATI.

Does NAATI Certify Translations?

No. NAATI only certifies individual translators and interpreters as meeting the stringent quality guidelines and standards set by NAATI, and does not certify the individual works of each practitioner.

If you are considering engaging a business or individual that claims to provide “NAATI Certified Translations”, you should carefully reconsider your options.
